Team Profile

The Cavaliers spent big money on Max Strus, who is a solid starter, but beyond that, this is the same team as a season ago. Cleveland has a star duo of guards in Garland and Mitchell, and an excellent center in Allen, but the guy who gives the team its only real chance at climbing in the East is third-year forward Mobley. He is a potential 25-10 big man who defends, blocks shots and shoots. He has far more than just all-star talent, and if he gets there, the Cavaliers might just have what they need to challenge the Bucks.

Player Profile:

It needs to be remembered that center Jarrett Allen is an elite fourth option in the league. Maybe not as a scorer, but he’s an elite rebounder and strong shot-blocker. He averaged 16-11 two seasons ago, but just recently 14-10, and the Cavaliers could really use the former.
